Abstract:

Noteworthy among many articles on implementing the Party Congress directives to push automation is a Science and Technology editorial warning against a narrow, production-oriented approach--a broad, socio-economic approach is needed. A Pravda editorial recounts barriers to automated production control a Socialist Industry article specifies them with unusual directness--lack of authority to match responsibility for automation, unrealistic training, little help from some adivisory institutes, nondissemination of successful methods. Other articles discuss specific problems. Irkutsk is experimenting with a regionwide controlmanagement system. Centralized territorial servicing of Minsk computers is highly successful in Riga but has not been adopted elsewhere or for other makes. The goal of 12-15,000 Ryad computers, publicized abroad, has yet to see print at home the internal version is given. Other articles discuss information retrieval tracking the Salyut orbital station computer grading of written examinations and prediction of epidemics establishment of an Administration of Scientific Instrument Construction.
